Are you an ailurophile or ‘phobe (in other words cat lover or cat hater/fearer)? I’ve been a cat lover all my life and my parents gave me my first cat when I was 5 years old and I’ve had one, on and off, ever since.

Sometimes, this is how I feel in the morning
ready to take on the world
all set for a journey
ready for mischief
a little light music in the garden
or quiet contemplation
blinded by the light
at the end of the day, a bit ragged around the edges
ready for bed
although I don’t think I would choose to sleep in Vincent Van Gogh’s bed …..
I came across this little monster in a park in Cologne, Germany. Inside the case was a hazel nut but not one I’d ever seen before, used as I am to the smaller, quiet, more discreet version to be found in England woodland. This one had fallen off a very tall tree – a Turkish Hazel tree – which can grow to a height of 25m. At first I thought it was the fruit of an edible (sweet/Spanish) chestnut as the case was similarly spiky. Closer inspection revealed that its case was fleshy, covered with tiny little hairs and sticky.

Daily Post photo challenge
So much of life happens inside something. A house, a car, a sleeping bag, a UFO.
Finding images of a thing inside something else can be a very powerful compositional tool.
This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, share a photo that says INSIDE.
The difference between a snapshot and an image that makes a memory can be something as small as clever composition. That’s what blank-in-a-blank lets us at Automattic do and what looking for images that explore “inside” can do for your photography.
